Our Mission

The Community Salon will make grooming services accessible for persons of low to moderate income levels with barriers to regular hygiene care. 


We will partner with human services organizations focused on empowerment of those in underserved communities and those unemployed in Maryland and the District of Columbia.


Mr. Claude Tompkins, Founder/Executive Director of The Community Salon, is a leader in his community with over 28 years of non-profit experience, and seeks to bring out “the beauty of life” in all who are served by this amazing organization!

Our Vision
